He grew up in the Kalorama district of Washington,[1] and after attending St. Albans School studied architecture at Princeton University.[1] He received an Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects in 1977,[2] and became a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 1979.[3] He is known for a style called "industrial baroque",[4] and is probably best known for the Washington Harbour development on the Potomac River in Georgetown,[5] the Goh Annex of The Phillips Collection,[6] and the renovation of the Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress.[7] He also led the successful restoration of Washington, D.C.'s tallest residential building, the Cairo Hotel in 1974.[1]
